Ebony's Art

This is Ebony's new piece of art--what she was working on before didn't get finished after she saw what I was doing.
The canvas that she used was one that I had started in the Fiber in Form workshop and had a raised design on it that was created using Texture Paste.
She took this outside and sprayed it with black paint and then some gold- silver and purple paint as well.
Next she got some bottles of Jo Sonjas background paint and dribbled it from the bottles all over the canvas followed by some glitter paints as well.
Well she got a bit heavy handed in some places so I suggested that she use a plastic fork and make some designs by dragging the fork through the thick paint.
And the good thing about this painting is that I get to keep this one.
Thank you Ebony for my special piece of art.

For some reason....mayhap the 'spray of upward strokes (of the fork?) it reminds me of New Orleans during Mardi Gras.

What I like here is that not only you get an artwork from your grandschild but that she has the possibilty to develope her skills at a place were she feels free and with someone who loves her.

Ebony has real talent - she could be a budding Van Gogh (talent wise I mean)
